  1. @Richard Fuhr Indeed, workflows are a Powerpack feature (apologies, I should've checked whether you had a Powerpack before suggesting it) but I think you'll find a wealth of useful features in the Powerpack as workflows are just one of the many excellent features in it You can find a summary of the main Powerpack features: https://www.alfredapp.com/powerpack/ And of course, your support also helps our small team continue developing Alfred through the years so that he's always there to serve you when you need him Cheers, Vero
  2. @Richard Fuhr There's a good chance that /opt/ isn't indexed at all by macOS, hence not seeing the result in Spotlight either. Your best bet is to create a simple workflow with a Keyword > Open File, which launches Anaconda. This will allow you to launch your app without worrying about indexing. Cheers, Vero
  3. @mikedvzo Alfred Remote 1.5 was released yesterday, as was Alfred 4.3.3, so make sure you're up to date on both so that you can take advantage of the new larger grids Documentation will be updated in short order too. Cheers, Vero
  4. @miq Double characters is suitable in some cases but it isn't a foolproof solution; Choosing that option requires some thought and sometimes - as with your example - some exceptions. You might want to add some out-of-order capitals, for example. Here's some insight into sequential snippets, using an example I use many times a day. We've created a huge snippet library of helpful support answers, links, code snippets, etc which we use to provide responses. I can then tailor the response, but it gives me a good starting foundation without typing til my fingers fall off. F
  5. @Cassady Can you turn your spreadsheet into a .csv file? How frequently will this information change or be updated? If you give a little more details as to where that data is, whether it changes or is static after a while (e.g. do you have a dozen pre-set up clients or thousands of changing ones), it'll be easier for the community to lend a hand Cheers, Vero
  6. Apologies for the slow reply, I seem to have missed this notification! Here's one of the popular workflows for searching the Notes app: https://github.com/sballin/alfred-search-notes-app/releases/tag/3.3.0 Cheers, Vero
  7. @ADG Welcome to the forum You can indeed delete individual items from the Clipboard Viewer using Fn + backspace. Cheers, Vero
  8. @miq It would be preferable for you to set keywords that won't accidentally be triggered. While I understand you want to keep the keywords as short and effortless as possible, it may be worth looking at prefixes, or using capitalisation to ensure that they're more unique. Here are some examples of recommendations for reliable, easy keywords that are less likely to accidentally trigger: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/snippets/#tips-expansion Cheers, Vero
  9. @miq Thanks for providing this example, and @deanishe for your input. In your example, "icr" isn't considered to be mid-string. Once a snippet is expanded, the mid-string marker is reset, as the snippet is now done. As such, Alfred treats the next typed characters as a new word, and doesn't stop you from typing two snippets concurrently. An example where a snippet keyword would be found mid-string is where you're typing the word "handicap" in a sentence, but you also have "ndi" as a snippet in one of your collections. Alfred won't treat "ndi" as a snippet keyword when m
  10. @miq Could you please give a clearer example? I'm not sure I understand exactly what you're typing in and in what order to result in the mid-string expansion you're describing. Could you also please provide a screenshot of your snippet collection to help clarify your keywords and the pasted content? Cheers, Vero
  11. @twizzard Have you looked at the File Troubleshooting guide? It will walk you step by step through using Alfred's built-in troubleshooter and how to resolve any indexing issues on your Mac. https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/indexing/ If you still have any issues, please provide more details, e.g. the output of the File Troubleshooter for a few files you're looking for, exactly what you're typing into Alfred, etc. and we'll be happy to help you further Cheers, Vero
  12. @Christian Bailey The original script created by Daniel is still available here: https://github.com/danieldiekmeier/textexpander-to-alfred3 As he states on that page, TextExpander has likely changed since he created this script in 2016, so depending on which version of TE you're using, this may need tweaking before it works again. Alfred should have no problem importing the snippets as this aspect of Alfred's Snippets feature will accept the same input as it did in Alfred 3 for compatibility reasons. Cheers, Vero
  13. We most definitely don't ban anyone for giving love to workflows that deserve it. Mmmm tacos...
  14. @zdlo Where are you ticking and unticking tracks nowadays? As far as I can see in Music.app, there's no longer a way to tick/untick tracks; This was a legacy feature from the days where you'd choose which tracks to sync to your iOS device primarily. It also allowed us to help you avoid including things like voice memos or ringtones in your random tracks, but it seems to have disappeared when iTunes did. If you can provide more details and a few screenshots, I'll be happy to help further Cheers, Vero
  15. @giovanni That's essentially built-in now, if I've understood correctly what you're looking for. Just type the question mark followed by any feature name, workflow name or keyword, even the word "hotkeys" or "keywords" to see relevant results from your features and workflows. More details about the feature can be found here: https://www.alfredapp.com/blog/tips-and-tricks/search-alfred-question-mark-trick/ Cheers, Vero
  16. @davewripley The fact that you're seeing the issue in Houdahspot as well indicates that it's an issue with your Mac's metadata, not with Alfred, so there are only so many suggestions I can make. You'll need to experiment and troubleshoot on your own Mac to narrow down whether there are files with non-standard characters that are causing metadata issues, work out whether it's specific files and/or folders. For example, what happens if you create a new folder on your Desktop and copy one or two folders from your PDF folder? Or if you create a file on your desktop and move it TO your
  17. @listentoyoureyes If you say that Alfred is showing in the Activity Monitor as running, try opening Alfred's preferences from the bowler hat in the menu bar or, if you've removed that, by using your Alfred hotkey combo, then Cmd + comma. Once the preferences are open, go to Appearance > Options > and ensure that Alfred is set to show on Default screen, and that the box to save the position when dragging Alfred main window is unchecked. You haven't specified what setup you use, but my guess is that Big Sur is mis-reporting the dimensions of your screen so Alfred's
  18. @AlexA I would suggest taking a look at the Dynamic File Search workflow that's built into Alfred. You'll find it under Workflows > [+] > Examples > Dynamic File Search. First, you choose a folder within which you'd like to search. Hit enter, then search for content. You could modify this to some extent to suit your needs, in terms of getting the second File Filter to search inside files etc. By being two steps, it resolves the issue deanishe mentions, in that multiple folders will match what you type in that first stage. With this workflow, I was
  19. @Jono Under Appearance > Options, you can decide when the subtext should appear. If you don't want the subtext, you can remove it (though I'm not sure I'd recommend it as, when searching for folders or files, it gives valuable context)
  20. @Scooterman Alfred's Clipboard History isn't really intended for scrolling. One can assume that if you're going back to the clipboard, you have at least a vague idea of what you're looking for. Type a few characters from the query you're looking for, which will filter down the list significantly to more relevant items only. Function + up/down arrows can also be used to page up / down, but is still less efficient than my first suggestion above. Cheers, Vero
  21. @albertkinng Always alfredapp.com You can simply reply to your Powerpack license or receipt email if it's easier, it'll come to Andrew and I. Cheers, Vero
  22. @rgilkes Which version of Alfred are you using? Please ensure you're using Alfred 4 from https://www.alfredapp.com and that you're up to date (currently version 4.3.2). If your issue persists, please take a look at the indexing troubleshooting guide here: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/indexing/ Cheers, Vero
  23. I've had a look and you're correct that the Chrome address bar, Chrome manipulates the snippet and removes the space at the end. Unfortunately, this is entirely in Chrome's hands and not something we have control over. It works in TextEdit and in normal, non-manipulating apps, so this is just something you'll have to keep in mind in apps that try to be overly "smart" by overruling what you're typing or pasting in. Cheers, Vero
  24. @adonis "Play all tracks by" follows the same behaviour as the "random album" feature, where it stays on screen to allow you to continue browsing your music collection, skip to the next song, etc. As this has been the behaviour of the Mini Player since the beginning of time, we're hesitant to make any changes to a behaviour that other users will have become used to for many years. Keep in mind that you can either use your Alfred main hotkey to start a different Alfred query, or the Escape key to just close the Mini Player and get on with your work once you've got your g
  25. @rocklobster Alfred uses the Music API, and doesn't search or keep an index of the music in your Music library. As such, the tracks you're seeing will be returned by iTunes/Music. I've checked with Andrew as well, and we've never encountered/heard of that issue. Might be worth logging out and back in to your iTunes account in the Music app, and checking that a friend or family member hasn't cheekily added new music to your collection Cheers, Vero
